It's been ages since I did a "daf yomi" post. (The idea was presented and explained here). So here's a quick one, about Jerusalem, from the Pesachim tractate we're currently crossing (page 8b, to be precise).
Rabbi Abin son of Rabbi Ada said in the name of Rabbi Itzhak: "Why aren't the fruit of Jerusalem as good as those of Genosar? (North of Tiberius, famous as the source of the best fruit of Erez Israel). So that the pilgrims won't say they've come to Jerusalem to eat its fruit, and there will be doubt if they came for the mitzva of the pilgrimage itself". Rabbi Dostai son of Rabbi Yannai said: "Why are the hot-springs of Tiberius not in Jerusalem? So that the pilgrims won't say they've come to Jerusalem to enjoy the hot-springs, and doubt will be cast on their motivation for the pilgrimage".
